Sledgehammer Games Confirms WW2 will be Supported after Black Ops 4 Launch

Call of Duty: World War II developer Sledgehammer Games plans to support their game for as long as people are playing it.

They confirmed their support in response to a tweet from a fan asking what they plan to do after Black Ops 4 launches.

The fan was worried that WWII would be forgotten in the hype of Black Ops 4, but Sledgehammer eased their concerns.

They replied by saying it will receive support for as long as people are playing.


Due to Call of Duty’s annual release schedule, the games tended to have a one year shelf life and did not receive content after the standard DLC schedule. Activision’s switch to a three developer cycle seems to have given CoD devs more room to support previous titles, however.

Sledgehammer’s previous game, Advanced Warfare, received new weapons and gear well into the lifespan of Black Ops 3.

Black Ops 3 might be the longest supported game yet, with new weapons and maps being added right up until the launch of Black Ops 4.

Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Ghosts received a 2GB update in August, though it is unclear if any new content was added in the patch. IW’s more recent Infinite Warfare currently has a 2XP event for the week of August 22. The servers for every Call of Duty game are still online.

With Sledgehammer’s commitment to WWII beyond the final DLC pack, old school CoD fans put off by the Specialists and abilities of Black Ops 4 may still have new content to enjoy next year.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
